Food is likely playing a role in your child's behaviour and pain. Most teachers, therapists, doctors and counsellors miss the impact of food because they are not trained to understand how food influences the function of the brain & body, nor do they have a way to coach you on implementing diet strategies that work - food is just not their tool. Since food impacts every tissue of the body, exploring food remains a powerful yet sorely under-utilized tool for helping your kids
If you've tried making diet changes and have seen no improvements it's probably because you didn't have a roadmap of the most powerful strategies or a way to systematically track changes. When it comes to diet, there is rarely One Thing that makes the difference - we have to think of diet as a whole. And if you don't have a map to follow while you do that, you're likely to get lost and confused.
If you're frustrated by even the mere thought of making diet changes and just don't think this is going to fly with your family, I encourage you to change your perspective. No parent likes to say "no" all the time and that kind of restriction-based approach can cause a rift in your family dynamic. But if you shift the conversation to one of nourishment, everything changes. Food becomes a tool for brining the family together rather than a source of conflict. Changing your family's diet does not have to (nor should it) focus on restriction.
You spend your nights sifting through all the blogs, facebook posts, books, articles and opinions to try to figure out what you should be feeding your child.
You finally free up time, energy and money to get this healthy food on the table...
...only to have your kids reject it because it’s the wrong color or they don’t like how it smells!
Back to square one.
Your doctor told you to eliminate 7 additional foods, so along with the special diet you've already got your kids on for their allergies you're not sure what's left to give them!
So what are you supposed to do now?
You've been wondering about whether food changes will make a difference. You're a little suspicious that they might be playing a role, but you're nervous to try changing things and are not sure which changes to even start with.
Your doctors and therapists tell you not to bother. So you feel confused and uncertain.
To use food to help your child while keeping your sanity intact you need to surround yourself with the right support, stick to a system, and know exactly what you're looking for.
This on-line coaching program focuses on simple diet changes that make a profound difference to your child's health and behaviour. These are the same steps I have taken many families through to reduce symptoms of autism, anxiety, ADHD and aggression. In Jumpstart we stay strategic and systematic. We start simple and keep this manageable.
"I am really grateful for the community you have provided. Having this keeps me taped into what is fundamental and is key to less anxiety overall. "
"Your Raising Resilience Jumpstart program has been a very helpful resource! The material is easy to access and intuitive, the strategies and material is helpful. Your Q&A sessions have been awesome and so personalized for an online course."
"Jess is extremely knowledgeable in her field of nutrition. Her passion for others health is commendable and she is delightful to work with. She goes way above and beyond to offer support and keep you informed while under her care."
I'm a mom of three, a holistic nutritionist, author, speaker and health coach specializing in children's nutrition. I'm also a former high school teacher.
I've been working with families for 20 years.
At our integrative healthcare clinic I spend my days helping parents find a nutrition strategy to help their kids calm down, learn better, have better sleep, have more stable moods.
We go beyond diagnosis. We use food to support the overall health of the body so that it works better.
When we do that, troubling symptoms - from skin rashes to tantrums to anxiety and inattention - start to dissolve.
It's a process I call Raising Resilience.
At home I’m a parent, like you, just trying to keep all my balls in the air and raise a healthy family.
"This is my 7 year old son. I knew that the changes we were making were making a difference when friends and family started commenting on how happy he was.
Sometimes it's hard to really see the changes when you're so immersed in the every day of it all, but then I see this and I see how happy and rested and joyful he is on a much more regular basis.
Diet changes, supplements, consistency....these have ultimately brought peace and joy to my son like we hadn't seen in years. It's hard - but it's so, so, so worth it.
Thank you Jess for your continued support and encouragement."
